The UFC’s next card in in the Philippines has received two more bouts, including a welterweight fight between James Moontasri and Alex Morono.

The promotion has announced that the two will fight at the upcoming, October 15th event, which will take place at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay, Manila.

Moontasri (9-4) is coming off a decision loss to Alex Oliveira in July, while Morono (12-3) earned a decision win over Kyle Noke in January, which was his UFC debut.

The UFC has also confirmed that middleweight Ryan Janes (8-1) will face Dongi Yang (13-3). The latter scored a stoppage win over Jake Collier in his last bout, which took place at UFC FN 79 in November.

Janes was scheduled to make his UFC debut against Adam Hunter at UFC on FOX 21, but Hunter was pulled from the bout due to a potential anti-doping violation.

UFC FN 97 will be headlined by a featherweight fight between Ricardo Lamas and BJ Penn.
